Publisher Comments:

Following on the heels of the successful "Plunges into Texas regional title, Uncle John visits the state of Michigan to explore its fascinating history, people, places, and sights. Uncle John's staff will comb the state to bring you tales of Michigan's most intriguing people--past and present; historic "firsts"; the best and most unusual man-made and natural attractions; stories of life under the French, British, and as part of the Northwest Territory up through statehood; cutting-edge culture; famous foodstuffs; and savvy travel destinations. Geographically, the state is unique among the 50 states in that it borders 4 out of 5 of the Great Lakes and its 3,200 miles of shoreline are second only to Alaska. Divided into two land masses, the Upper and Lower Peninsulas are connected by a 5-mile-long bridge. Longfellow celebrated the Upper Peninsula in his famous "Song of Hiawatha." We'll explore other ways Michigan is memorialized in song, story, folklore, and history to reveal Michigan to you in all its glory. Some of the many fun insights you'll gain include: wolverines have a long history in the state, from being a staple of fur traders, to the state nickname, to the name of the University of Michigan football team.

Synopsis:

Uncle John's Bathroom Reader Plunges into Michigan presents over 300 pages of little known facts and witty dish on the Great Lakes State. With over 10 million residents, Michigan has no shortage of fascinating folklore and colorful characters. Porcelain partisans can read about the antics of the Kellogg Brothers, the first minimum daily wage, the world's only floating post office, the different flags that have flown over Michigan, and much more.

Synopsis:

What do Yoopers and Trolls have in common? Not much to hear them tell it, but both types of Michigander appreciate great bathroom reading. And theyre proud to call Michigan home! Celebrate the state that brought us Motown, Henry Ford, and the worlds only floating post office. So no matter which peninsula you call home, get ready for a funny, unforgettable visit. Read about…
